not solve the problem, but creates new ones. in my city last week, there were protests in front of mcdonalds. unions want fast workers paid more. the new "new york times" put thn the front page saying mcdonalds pays her $8, but she deserves $15 #. civil ights groups, union demands a higher living wage, and they may get it. [chanting] >> the big bad union like the big bad wolf like the government use force. if they want a $15 minimum, that's what employers must pay. that sounds good to people. everyone will get a raise. the problem comes from what is not seen. i can interview the guy who got a raise. i can't interview the guy who didn't open a mcdonalds because work rules were too onerous or those never offered a job because high union paid skills protected him out of a job. we don't know who those people are. they are the unscene
about my team we are a great example of this city. look at the diversity of personalities, where we all come from, the different faces from different stories and we all have one goal in mine. we had one job in mine. we had one dream in mine and that is to be world series champions with this group and i am proud to say that. you guys the same thing. we couldn't have done it without you, the city of san francisco. like i said you guys better be proud. you need to be proud and i will tell you for dang sure we are all world series champions and wearing orange and black in san francisco. [cheers and applause] >> all right. now i would like to introduce two more gentlemen. the first gentleman his first year with the giants and goes to the world series. the other gentleman arrived halfway through the season. coming up to speak now is angel pagan and hunter pens. [cheers and applause] >> thank you guys. i am going to try to improvise since the mayor stole my speech. i would like to thank god. i would like to thank the san francisco giants for giving me the opportunity to play in fro
others that remain wounded, paralyzed by guns. i see it on the front lines in my cities and other cities across america. the urgen sill is there. and now, hopefully, more people are seeing if you don't solve this problem, it's going to continue to pop up around our country. and this is the beauty of it in my opinion. this is almost the elegance of it. that the majority of americans, the majority of gun owners, the overall majority of members agree on sensible gun laws that will make a dramatic difference. 74% of nra members agree with most of us that if you have a criminal conviction, that criminals should not be able to buy guns. and even at higher levels, when you think about the reality, that if you are a suspected terrorist in america, you can go to the secondary gun market and buy a weapon and conduct the kind of terrorism we saw in mumbai which was done with automatic and semi-automatic weapons. this is the call of our country. to do what the overall majority thinks is right. one out of every two women murdered with a gun are murdered by an intimate, by someone that they know well.
of emergency management in san francisco and one of my absolute favorite people in city hall, the great ann kronenberg. [cheering and applauding] >> i have to move this mic down a little bit, supervisor. welcome. thank you all so much for coming and honoring mayor moscone and supervisor harvey milk today. it is absolutely mind boggling to me that it's been 34 years. i think 34 years ago tonight, i was standing out here, we all had candles. we did the candle light march and we were in total shock, denial, grief beyond belief. i think we really felt at that point so hopeless because we had lost two people who were so important to us in our community. today, as we leave here and we march up to castro street, we're going in the opposite direction because i think there is so much hope left. we're going up the street, and that's harvey's whole message, his whole legacy was about hope. so, again, i thank you all so much for coming today. we have wonderful speakers. our electeds are here, and i thank you all for coming. you'll be hearing from most of them. and i look in the crowd and i just see fam
of the castro and the city's well known liberality. having grown -- one of my family's first house was up market street from the castro so i am very familiar with the neighborhood. that intersection is two blocks away from the childrens' library, two blocks away from the eureka valley recreation center with the lovely play ground for children. it is three blocks away from two elementary schools. it is on the intersection of a streetcar line, a bus line, other means of public transportation that children ride everyday, and i think we're giving a message to the world and to the city that we really don't care to have families or children in the castro, and i feel this is very wrong. i would like the kids to be able to come to the castro theater and do a sing along little mermaid and the sing along sound of music and enjoy the castro just like the rest of us. thank you very much. >> thank you. next speaker. >> hello. i am wi at. and i am opposed to the ban on public nudity. public nudity in no way harms children. whether or not a business is affected by nudity depends on the effectiveness o
, why the city has actively in my opinion blunted any inquiry into his death. and i would urge that the owners of this bar do the public service by asking why any supervisor for this district so far has refuetzd to step forward and ask what happened to joseph malison, why was this gay man in my opinion bullied and forced to die a gruesome death while a city employee. it's been 13 years and some people i know down in new orleans said that there's such a thing as a curse and maybe the curse of joe might be one of the reasons why the gay community has not been flourishing during the last 13 years. thank you. >> next speaker, is there anyone else who would like to speak? seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues, can we move this forward without objection? >> item 5 is an ordinance amending the health code to prohibit smoking at certain outdoor events. >> thank you, colleagues, i am the sponsor of this item. i am urging your support for this legislation that would make our outdoor fairs and events on city property smoke free. san francisco is a mecca for exciting dive

at alternatives and implentded without changes to the city charter. from my perspective we can make changes but if we can did do that without would be ideal. next according to the mayor's response this has been implemented and the cio should be involved with hiring of this personnel and number 17 and included with department heads in performance review process of current ict personnel. what i stated for this requires further analysis. if there are functional relationships between the city cio and departmental cio's they should assist them in the reviews. and recommendation 18 pending charter revision mayor develop methods for speeding up the hiring process for ict personnel. and the mayor should speed up the method for hiring ict personnel. finding number 25. city technology culture is based on the belief that departments work on individual missions in expense of city wide needs. partially disagree. while few departments say their needs should trump city wide concerns bureaucratic turf has created this culture and not promote cooperation. finding number 26. the cooperative attitude

in america. let me agree with grover. all the shootings in my city, only one was done by a law-abiding citizen who bought a gun. buy the guns you want. but the problem is in america right now is that a terrorist person who is on the no-fly list could go into the secondary market today and buy a weapon. we need to shut down these secondary markets and when you poll nra members, you poll nra members, 74% agree that nobody in america should be able to buy a gun without doing a background debate. let's stop the false debate. >> cory is right. this is a false -- >> shut down -- >> part of what happens, this is so many things in washington, it's built on myths. and it's not reality, and the nra and the leadership of the nra is built on myth. i would not have guessed that anybody who had diminished credibility could get up and diminish their credibility more than what wayne lapierre did friday. average folks, like cory said, average folks know you have to do something about this and know how comprehensive. i live in texas. i own five guns, and all the folks i associate with, when you
